After the much talked about blind auditions and battle rounds, The Voice PH has finally came to its first live shows.
Slated at the New Port Performing Arts Theater in Resorts World Manila, the Voice PH semi-finalists showcased their singing prowess along side their team coaches. The show was started by the performance of 4 team coaches/mentors Apl de Ap, Sarah Geronimo, Bamboo and Ms. Lea Salonga. It was then followed by the individual performances per team and in-between performances from other semi-finalists who are scheduled to perform next week. Tonight’s first live show performers were:
Team Apl : Cora dela Cruz, Thor Dulay and Jessica Reynoso
Team Lea : Daryl Shy, Rhada and RJ dela Fuente
Team Bamboo: Talia Reyes, Myk Perez and Lee Grane
Team Sarah: Eva delos Santos, Morisette Amon and Junji Arias
After the 12 performances which was again created online buzz evident by having the hashtag #VoicePHLive landing on top of Twitter Worldwide Trending topics, the results were announced based on viewers text and online votes.
And here are the text and online votes.
Team Apl : Thor Dulay
Team Lea : Daryl Shy
Team Bamboo : Myk Perez
Team Sarah : Morisette Amon
After the top 4 were announced, the coaches then have to decide which among their 2 remaining team members should move on to the next phase. And based on the coaches decision, here are the lucky ones who still have the chance to continue their dreams.
Team Apl : Jessica Reynoso
Team Lea : Rhada
Team Bamboo : Lee Grane
Team Sarah : Eva delos Santos
With that choices, Voice Philippines bade goodbye to Cora dela Cruz, RJ dela Fuente, Talia Reyes and Junji Arias. As expected Bamboo’s decision again created controversies as Talia gave more solid performance than Lee. But that’s his decision, we can always agree to disagree. Anyways it was a great show, just hope they can make it a Saturday and Sunday live shows so that it won’t take too much of the airtime.
